    Uncle,

    I can certainly why you feel that way. I have encountered a few ravello opportunities in recent months. I have only been addicted for jus over the better part of a year but I have yet to have an opportunity at acquiring some. Ravello looks great especially when the reddish tonees are prominent.

    One thought: I recall seeing several shell lwb's on the shelf at Citishoes when I bought my whiskey lwb's two weeks ago from Voltaire. One may have been cigar, albeit in a smaller, 9ish size. It may be worth it to call them. Originally, I was told the whiskey lwb I was hunting for was no longer in stock (so I contented myself with plunging deeper into my snuff suede fascination). However while the snuff chukkas were being ordered I browsed the shells on the wall and found my whiskey! They didn't even know they had what I was looking for. Why not call V and ask him to double check? Fwiw, I did see a large ~12ish looking color 8 nst boot on the wall too...

    Again, best of luck in your search.

    Received my Leffot X Alden Greenwich Tobacco Chamois boots in today. Absolutely love them. Have to say they're my favorite pair of Aldens right now.

    These are available in my size... I have considered them for a while now... How does the leather feel on foot versus chromexcel or cordovan?

    sadly, I'll be sending the newly acquired ravello nst boots back to shoemart. there is so noticeable (imo) 'marbling' effect on one of the shoes. had it been just a small section i might have been ok..
    I tried to get a pic of it but it doesn't show very well

    feel free to hit up the shoemart in a week or two to see once they hit their inventory again. size 12

    "Cordovan" shoes are excluded. It works on Alden suede and Alden calf.

    The Peal & Co cordovan boot - made by C&J - is not suppposed to be included in the sale. Once BB realizes it, the code will not work (I had this converstion with a BB CSA for a prior sale). But they will honor the sale price if you get it to work.

    I ordered this boot about 18 months ago (when I found it in stock). Mine too were sent back - the coloring was too uneven.

    its a shame, if the panel on the inside of the shoe against the ankle were off I might have been okay with it. but for $730, I would have liked a little better overall quality.

    that's not even bringing into account a 1.5" portion on the outer sole that seems was sanded after the dressing was applied.

    oh well, cost me $8 for return shipping
